Re: Penrith question whether Nathan Cleary would join dad Ivan at struggling Wests Tigers

“Just say for instance if Penrith finish in the top four and Wests finish in the last four, do you want to go to a club that is a chance of winning a comp?” Fletcher said. “Do you want to go to a club that might not be a chance of winning a comp? Or yes, you go there because it is your dad. I think...

Re: MOSES,CLEARY & FARAH - join forces for Lebanon

I am glad we kept Brooks because to me you can't change temperament and Moses will always be about Moses whereas this year we've seen Brooks' mature as a player. When I first moved into management, a wise person advised me to hire people based on attitude rather than skillset. You can teach skills ...

I'm tiring of the referee's whistle - some fairly ordinary decisions as well.

Why aren't Noff and Sue playing for Samoa?
Didn't Noffa have surgery off season to repair an injury he carried all year? A double hernia rings a bell. No idea on Sue.

Re: RL World Cup 2017 Thread...* SPOILERS

Geez Tui cops so much unwarranted crap. Always need a punching bag. I didn't see the first half but he was great the second half. One thing I noticed is he doesn't seem to panic - a couple of times his options were shut off but he still managed a decent play. I have to remind myself he's only 22. E...

Re: RL World Cup 2017 Thread...

Good game and sensational atmosphere for the entire time. Particular mention of the pre-game routine, it's heartening to see men with the mutual respect to kneel together and then give a rousing anthem and cultural display. It makes the Australian pre-game against England look even more cringeworthy...

Re: MOYLAN MAYBE RELEASED ..

Panthers will have two of the best kickers in the comp - it will be interesting to see who gets the job.

Re: RL World Cup 2017 Thread...

Ode to country - my god, that was odious. I thought the concept was good but the execution and content were cringeworthy. Of course no officials or media will be critical for fear of offending someone. I think it would have been better if they had a didge player rise up from the huddle and give a p...

Re: RL World Cup 2017 Thread...

Some of the Aussie's look gassed already... Poms with more energy. Hmm, I thought the opposite. The Aussies are quick, sharp but uncoordinated whilst the Poms are starting to walk after a solid start. I have a feeling this is going to blow out as the Poms tire and the Aussies start to click. Woods ...

Re: America - Gun Control

I took a week away from this thread and I can see nothing more sensible than when I left. As I said in an earlier remark, you can't talk reason to fanatics. I think I'll come back when the footy season starts.

Re: Ivan Cleary donates Kidney..

A more noble act would be hard to find - kudos to Ivan for a remarkable gift.
Also a timely reminder to register as an organ donor when you die and tell your family about your wishes. Don't take them with you - save a life from your death bed.

Re: America - Gun Control

As with most topics - gun control, gay marriage, religion, politics etc - it's virtually pointless having the 'discussion' because the people most likely to enter the debate are already totally convinced either for or against the topic. You don't change the fanatics, you can only hope the government...

VOR, took a snippet of my comment and concluded that i said there was truth on the internet. Reread what i wrote. I took snippets to be concise - it's good manners.
